The department offers a free security survey to all Argentine Township residents and business owners. Officers will inspect, on request, homes, businesses, churches and schools and make recommendations about security. Officers survey the physical aspects of the property, including doors, windows, lighting and landscaping. They also evaluate the operational practices of businesses. Areas of potential concern may be money handling procedures or key control, and security practices in general.
A security survey is a process in which the citizens and officer interact. The officer walks the individual through the home or business, notes problems and suggests options to correct them. The goal is to make people more aware of their individual property and encourage them to plan ahead, so they are not easy targets.
